Wow, what a difference 20-30 degrees make! All summer long, the heat and humidity have had me in a brain fog. But it's 65˚today; I’m clear headed and ready to roll.
What made my summer special were ordinary moments, shared with extraordinary friends!
Wanda Hanson of Exuberant Color surprised me with this remarkable gift. It’s one of her signature batik colorwash quilts. Read more about it here.
She gave me the colors of summer to enjoy all year long!
Many friends came to visit, in spite of the oppressive heat. Over coffee or lunch, we’d natter away, bare our souls, then laugh ourselves silly.
Friends generously shared the bounty of their gardens and kitchens -- fresh picked tomatoes and basil, delicious peach cobbler, and the best blueberry pie I've ever tasted!

By the end of summer, my friends had convinced me to accept one more gift — the realization that I’m deserving of kindness, love, respect, and the occasional niceties of life -- that I am “enough” just as I am.
